Who we are
Founded in 2012, Arbitration Place is a premier Arbitral Centre with world-class facilities in Toronto and Ottawa and cutting-edge technology enabling excellence in virtual case proceedings. With a formidable roster of over 30 Arbitrators including many of Canada’s leading domestic and international lawyers and mediators, including former Chief Justice of Canada and Supreme Court Justices, as well as prominent international attorneys, we are ranked seventh in the world of leading arbitration.
Arbitration Place Virtual (APV), our virtual case management service, is a fully customizable dispute resolution service through a secure eHearing format. We use advanced video-conferencing software and communications hardware to facilitate a stable and seamless connection that authorized participants log into from wherever they are located. APV can be used for any type of real-time dispute resolution proceeding, including arbitrations, mediations, motions and procedural conferences, examinations-for-discovery, settlement conferences, and court litigation.
As the demand for virtual arbitration has increased, we are hiring contract Virtual Case Managers (lawyers) to oversee these hearings. A practicing lawyer, you are seeking an opportunity to be part of the future of dispute resolution. As our new Virtual Case Manager, you will work with clients and participate in sessions to present the case, evidence or arguments.

Growth and innovation. We’re leading the industry in APV and scaling our operations quickly to meet demand. We are growing globally and innovating rapidly.
A positive environment. You will be part of a collaborative client focussed team, with the freedom to work remotely on a diverse range of local, national and international cases.
What you bring to the table:
This is an open-ended contract position paid on an hourly rate. Hours will depend on your availability and client demand. Many of our Virtual Case Managers work 40+ hours a week. While hours are not guaranteed we will endeavour to accommodate full time work where we can. We require our Virtual Case Managers to be very flexible to meet the ever changing needs of our client and our contracts reflect the nature of our work.
